Linda Sarsour: She’s baack (demands 1st amendment, peaceful assembly)

May 11, 2020/ Foley Square.
Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory lead an
“ILLEGAL” protest against police brutality.

FIRST. There were the ILLEGAL arrests for peaceful assembly on Saturday, May 9, 2020,  NINE patriots ARRESTED by the NYPD for peaceably walking – with American flags – outside NY City Hall. HOWEVER, Mayor “RED BILL “de Blasio has OUTLAWED our First Amendment right to peaceful assembly. So, on May the 9th, the NYPD were willing puppets – violating those CONSTITUTIONAL rights.

This isn’t Germany!” one yelled during the protest. The arrests come as Gov. Andrew Cuomo extended the state’s stay-at-home lockdown until at least June 7. According to NYPD data, 374 summons “for violations of emergency procedures and acts liable to spread disease” were issued between March 16 and May 5. [NY Post]

Two days later, it was a different game. May 11, 2020.

Same Police. Same City. Same Mayor. But, the hardcore leftists, lead by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, FREELY assembled in Foley Square (across from the Court House).

IMG_2453

There were many police standing (and just watching) as these outraged Marxists trashed the NYPD and challenged one of their own: Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio.

Marching from Foley to 1 Police Plaza they were allowed to ASSEMBLE, MARCH and PROTEST. unchallenged,

IMG_2100

NO ARRESTS. NO CEASE AND DESIST. Because Linda and Tamika called the shots. Even the mayor seems to fear the leftist mob and their new found (convenient) love of our Constitution.

NEXT, on Wednesday, May 13, at 2 pm. Patriots will attempt to exercise the same Constitutional First Amendment Rights. AGAIN. Outside City Hall. PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY.

“How much longer?  New Yorkers are fed up with being kept in lock down. Unemployment is rising, businesses are shut down for miles on end, restrictions are being enforced to the point of absurdity.  The longer we are kept in what appears to be a perpetual lock down, the lower our ‘herd immunity’ to other viruses and colds becomes. We become poorer and businesses will never be able to re-open.  We worked with temporary restrictions. We gave up our rights temporarily to freedom of religion and assembly. We gave up our jobs & seeing our family.  ENOUGH!  Other states are reopening with new guidelines. There are NO valid reasons why NYC is not doing the same. It’s time to let Mayor Moron DeBlasio know that he can not take away our Constitutional rights. He can not shut the city down permanently. We must be able to return to work and businesses must be allowed to re-open with guidelines. We must be able to return to our houses of worship. Opening a few streets for NYC residents to walk up and down like zombies is not the answer. “

Stand Up For New York City!

Wanna bet things don’t go well?

Socialists’ General Strike. May Day 2020: DON’T WORK!

Tomorrow is May Day 2020. A favorite of the Communist insurgents. But, how will they manage their yearly protests since the tyrannical Governor CUOMO  has shut down our once vibrant city?

What I have managed to cull so far is a National STRIKE against WORKING and paying rent (which is an issue of import for everyone …since none but a few ESSENTIALS are allowed to earn an income)

So, for the curious, the latest info from the Socialist / Marxist left who never cease to work the proletariat towards the next uprising.

“This is the launch video for General Strike 2020. We are working to unite the working class by showing individuals the path to organization and getting those organizations working together.” genstrike.org

FYI: YOU TUBE leaves this video up. Socialism apparently does not violate their community standards.

The ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic is exposing critical flaws in the institutions we rely on for our daily lives. The wealthiest nations in the world are failing to protect citizens from this deadly disease, shamelessly neglecting the needs of the people. In the USA, too little is being done too late to protect us from the disease. Countless working poor people are having to go to work with symptoms because we can’t afford to take time off.

The federal government has been slow to respond, and the stimulus packages they have cobbled together are woefully inadequate to protect the most vulnerable members of our society.

President Trump and capitalists across the country are expressing interest in workers going back to their jobs even before the pandemic is safely dealt with, callously proving that they put their own profits ahead of the lives and well being of the working class.

This situation is, quite simply, unsustainable.

People are dying, and the wealthy elites are demonstrating that they value their profits more than our lives.

We welcome all exploited members of society: workers, the disabled, LGBTQ+, indigenous people, the neuro divergent, the mentally ill, and anyone else who is suffering without adequate relief through this pandemic.”  genstrike.org 

Our rallying cry: “DO NOT ACT ALONE.”

Now, on to the Rent Strike.

“…. there’s a possibility that some strikers will be evicted once New York’s moratorium is lifted in late June.

The strikers are demanding that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo cancel rent and mortgage payments for four months or the duration of the coronavirus pandemic, whichever is longer. That would be a significant escalation from the state’s current solution: a moratorium on evictions, which is set to end June 20. And it’s a recognition that the economy could remain in crisis for years.”

If the CITY doesn’t ease the TAXATION of the landlords, they will take it out on the tenants. And  who will they rent to, after these WRONGFUL evictions?

Screen-Shot-2020-04-30-at-1.09.09-PM.png

“On Monday, the strikers got a high-profile supporter: “People can’t pay,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the progressive Democrat from the Bronx, who is co-sponsoring a national bill to cancel rent … ” [Vice]

[https://www.socialistalternative.org/2020/04/08/rent-strike-may-1-cant-pay-wont-pay/]

“In this upside down world, many workers will ask, “Why have I for decades been giving the landlord half my paycheck every week? It’s almost feudal.” This is capitalism in the twenty-first century.

We need a nationwide rent strike on May 1 not only to take urgent action in this crisis, but also to build the fight for a socialist world.”

  • Can’t pay! Won’t pay! For a nationwide mass rent strike on May 1
  • A complete national moratorium on all evictions and foreclosure proceedings nationally
  • End all rent and mortgage payments during the crisis
  • No rent increases during 2020!
  • Support Sanders call to pay all laid off workers their full wages
  • All workers without paid work should be eligible for monthly federal payments equivalent to a living wage of $15 an hour or $600 per week.
  • Bring the properties of the top 50 corporate landlords into democratic public ownership
  • For a massive national program to build publicly-owned, high quality social housing as part of the country’s reconstruction plan

[https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/m7qme3/new-york-city-tenants-want-the-state-to-cancel-their-rent-so-theyre-going-on-strike]

“We are working to unite workers from across the USA and around the world to stand up and fight for our own lives—from the safety of our own homes.

General Strike 2020 is calling for all workers to remain sheltered in place in accordance with current medical guidance. Additionally, we are calling for workers to participate in nationwide strikes: rent strikes, debt strikes, and labor strikes.”

We are also asking participants to hang white sheets or towels outside of their homes as a sign of solidarity.

… we are asking you to organize, participate in, and support rent strikes, tenants’ unions, and movements for a rent freeze in your local community and beyond. United in solidarity, we’ll show the elite class, landlords, and real estate developers that we will not accept the devastation of our communities in the name of short-term profit.

The insanity. The chaos. This meltdown of our city – is music to the Marxist/Socialist ears.

“…. hang white sheets or towels outside of their homes as a sign of solidarity ….”

Guess we’ll know who the Socialist/Marxist tools are.

“Linda Sarsour: We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders” (before the pandemic)

April 8, 2020. Before The China Virus exploded across the world, there was “Linda Sarsour: We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders” . Her book signing held at NYC’s famous Strand Book Store on March 11, 2020.

FLASHBACK:  Linda Sarsour @lsarsour

My book comes out TODAY, on #SuperTuesday of course. Never thought I would ever type these words. It’s the right book at the right time. Get your copy today OR post the one you receive with hashtag #NotABystander. #NotMeUs

However, this “Right Time” book signing (on the 11th) was also protested by Yad Yamin-NY.  It was NOT the “Right Time”.

“Why, protest some might ask?” Well, to begin, Sarsour is an infamous Jew-Hater. Also, she supports Sharia Law and has gone on-record supporting the elimination of Israel. (There’s more) She has promoted Jihad and embraced terrorist Rasmeah Odeh.”

Yad Yamin decided they TOO were not to be BYSTANDERS, so on March 11 a call went out to :

“Join Yad Yamin NY outside of Strand Book Store. Remember, nothing is creepier than a Jew hater. #JewsFightBack “

Jew hater, lyin’ Linda Sarsour, will be at Strand Book Store to promote her autobiography. If we didn’t know any better, by reading lyin’Linda’s promotion written by Strand Bookstore, we’d think that lyin’ Linda should get a humanitarian award. We know better. Time to fight back! No time for silence!

But, then, in the blink of an eye, everything changed.

March 12-13, 2020 : the NY City /State government shut the city down, making this post an after thought.  The pandemic media-mania overwhelmed the NYC business community. With no income, rents can’t be paid. Employees are laid off. Recovery, for many, a very slim possibility.

We were silenced. Unwilling participants in the pandemic confusion. However, Linda did manage to find a pandemic connection so she could promote Islam:

Linda Sarsour @lsarsour – March 20, 2020

I am watching ‘Pandemic’ on Netflix and finding it very informative and grounding. Highly recommend. I am also appreciating that the leading health figure in NYC on pandemics is a brilliant Muslim doctor named Dr. Syra Madad who is featured in this series.

Meanwhile, our protest. Better late than never is here . On You tube

Finally, some light reading: The Press Release for Sarsour’s book promotion. (hurl alert)

Linda Sarsour: We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders

Wednesday March 11: 7:00PM 8:00PM

  Buy a copy of We Are Not Here to be Bystanders or a $15 gift card to attend. This event will take place in our 3rd floor Rare Book Room. Linda Sarsour, co-organizer of the Women’s March, shares how growing up Palestinian Muslim American, feminist, and empowered her, moved her to become a globally recognized activist on behalf of marginalized communities across the country.

“On a chilly spring morning in Brooklyn, nineteen-year-old Linda Sarsour stared at her reflection, dressed in a hijab for the first time. She saw in the mirror the woman she was growing to be—a young Muslim American woman unapologetic in her faith and her activism, who would discover her innate sense of justice in the aftermath of 9/11. Now heralded for her award-winning leadership of the Women’s March on Washington, in We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders Linda Sarsour offers a poignant story of community and family.

From the Brooklyn bodega her father owned, where Linda learned the real meaning of intersectionality, to protests in the streets of Washington, DC, Linda’s experience as a daughter of Palestinian immigrants is a moving portrayal of what it means to find one’s voice and use it for the good of others.

We follow Linda as she learns the tenets of successful community organizing, and through decades of fighting for racial, economic, gender, and social justice as she becomes one of the most recognized activists in the nation. Throughout, she inspires readers to take action as she reaffirms that we are not here to be bystanders.”

In his foreword to the book, Harry Belafonte writes of Linda, “While we may not have made it to the Promised Land, my peers and I, my brothers and sisters in liberation can rest easy that the future is in the hands of leaders like Linda Sarsour. I have often said to Linda that she embodies the principle and purpose of another great Muslim leader, brother Malcolm X.

This is her story…

Ending with her GLOWING Press Bio:

Linda Sarsour is an award-winning civil rights activist, community organizer, and mother of three. A Palestinian Muslim American born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she is the former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York and the co-founder of the first Muslim online organizing platform, MPower Change. She is also a founding member of Justice League NYC, a leading force of activists, artists, youth, and formerly incarcerated individuals committed to criminal justice reform through direct action and policy advocacy.

Sarsour served as national co-chair of the largest single day protest in US history, the Women’s March on Washington. Named among 500 of the most influential Muslims in the world, she was also cited as one of Fortune’s 50 Greatest Leaders, and featured as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2017. She has won numerous awards for her activism, including a Champion of Change award from the Obama Administration. She is a frequent media commentator on issues that affect Muslim communities, Middle East affairs, and criminal justice reform. She is most recognized for her transformative intersectional organizing work and movement building.

We return to the present: April 8, 2020 where New York  City is “On Pause”  …  still ….

“It Came from CHINA” (the stealth virus grows) as NYC deconstructs

March 17- 29, 2020 . Posting six short slideshows of  the government’s economic shut down of mid town Manhattan.

Part 1 – The Signs.  The China Virus shuttered the restaurants (and theatres) in midtown Manhattan,  I found the many signs posted on the doors and windows, to go from hopeful to resignation … as the reality took hold.

IMG_1318 copy

Part 2. Boarded Store fronts- The empty once vibrant businesses, once inviting business (open-to-view) were papered and boarded over with a sad resignation (or fear of looting).

IMG_1423 march 22

Part 3 – Empty Chairs- The emptiness, before the windows were boarded up or covered with paper, as though the emptiness was too sore a wound to be left uncovered.

IMG_1224

Part 4 – Street Scenes – As the city shut down more each day. Never like the city’s ad campaign: “Don’t be afraid of anyone”. Someone managed to improve on the message – look close:

IMG_1268 copy

Part 5 – Street scenes 2 –the empty streets offered up the unique and absurd. Not a fan of the pedicabs sitiing on the American flag.

IMG_1225 copy

Part 6- My first day out (March 17th) I went down to Battery Park/ Ground Zero. I thought the stranded tourists might still be able to wander lower Manhattan. Nope. The Statue of Liberty was closed. Saw a couple of tourists taking pictures at the Battery …  Then, at Ground Zero I found the  memorial pools chained off. Why?  Its outdoors. Decided to back to midtown. Itself – a growing WASTELAND.

IMG_1182

xThe ene-media is predicting this “might’ drag out thru the summer, right up til – surprise,surprise – the NOVEMBER elections.   Did the soc/commie/progs finally find a way to destroy us from within? Gotta consider, though, did the government wonks actually think this meltdown/shutdown through? OR are they so focused on the destruction of our President – that they are willing to destroy our country?

“Womens Strike” NYC on International Women’s Day 2020

March 12-13, 2020 : The China Virus has finally given the Demo-Nazi City /State governments the opportunity to go mad across the country. Making this post on Womens’ Rights an after-thought; looking back, perhaps, on ‘better times”.

 Flash forward, the Demo-Nazis shut the economy (country) DOWN. State by State. TDS rules the media-hype regarding the China Virus resulting in businesses going under. Rents can’t be paid. Employees laid off.  Isolation. Depression. Recovery, not possible unless … with Nov 8th on the horizon … THEY HAVE A PLAN.

 The Demo-Nazis are aquiver with doomsday excitement. (That says it all)

MEANWHILE, on March 8, 2020:

International Women’s Day 2020
WHAT are they striking against
The Patriarchy?

Never heard of this SOCIALIST Holiday (originally called National Woman’s Day) with a history dating back 108 years — working its way across the continents to be GLOBAL. (SPANISH appears to be the Voice of the Women 2020)

“Ni una menos” defines itself as a “collective scream against machista violence”.

Oblivious to the illegal migrants and their rapes and murders: “This is your daily reminder that New York City released an illegal alien charged with the rape of a 13 year old girl . Their Sanctuary City policy kept him from being turned over to ICE. This is exactly what Trump was elected to fix RT if NYC should be defunded over this! Charlie Kirk @charliekirk11 (2020)

“The first glimpse of this feminist movement was in 1909, That’s when the Socialist Party of America celebrated 15,000 women who protested long work hours, low pay, and the lack of voting rights in New York City.”

“The Rapist is YOU” (Chilean Rape Chant)

“March 8th- This historical day celebrates the achievements of women all across the world… typically a day for women from all different backgrounds and cultures to band together to fight for gender parity and women’s rights. The special 2020 theme, #EachforEqual, drawing on the notion of “collective individualism.”  (there’s even a POSE)

International Women’s Day became an official holiday in Russia in 1913. On March 8, 1917 (February 23 in the former Russian calendar), tens of thousands of Russian women took to the streets demanding change.

In 1975, the United Nations officially recognized International Women’s Day, and, in 1996, began to adopt an annual theme for every year.

As for the United States, International Women’s Day isn’t recognized as an official holiday, although it’s been proposed“. [Good Housekeeping]

This is what I stayed for:

Barely Informed with Elad grabbed some fun interviews with the Socialist protestors revealing their usual mental blocks regarding the patriarchy and anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour.

Why does this  Rape Chant appeal to the American press and American Socialists? Nothing to do with American Women.

For The Curious:  The song and accompanying dance takes on the patriarchy as the cause both of violence against women and the victim shaming that often comes after. “Y la culpa no era mía, ni dónde estaba, ni cómo vestía,” they sang (“and the fault wasn’t mine, not where I was, not how I dressed”).

Un violador en tu camino” (“A rapist in your way”).

[Keep arms loose at your side, march in place to the beat for the first eight verses]
El patriarcado es un juez,

“Join millions of participants by wearing purple on March 8. Signifiying justice and dignity, the color purple has become an international symbol for women since the origination of purple, green, and white as a symbol of women’s equality from the Women’s Social and Political Union in the UK in 1908. (Purple signifies justice and dignity. Green symbolises hope. White represents purity, but is no longer used due to ‘purity’ being a controversial concept.)”

A rapist in your way (English translation)

The patriarchy is a judge
that judges us for being born
and our punishment
is the violence you don’t see.

The patriarchy is a judge

And the fault wasn’t mine, not where I was, not how I dressed
And the fault wasn’t mine, not where I was, not how I dressed
And the fault wasn’t mine, not where I was, not how I dressed

The rapist is you.

It’s the cops,

Over your dreams smiling and sweet,
watches your loving cop.”

“Don’t Extradite Assange!” Global Protest by NYC Marxists

Global Protest –Feb. 24, 2020- NYC
Don’t Extradite Assange!”

Julian Assange  founder of WikiLeaks
Hosted by NYC Free Assange and Big Apple Coffee Party

Juan Carlos Ruiz, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church; Larry Hamm, activist.

Join us in the worldwide Global Protest.
Join us in solidarity with NYC Free Assange

The potential chilling effect on journalists, and others, who expose official wrongdoing by publishing information disclosed to them by credible sources, could have a profound impact on the public’s right-to-know what their government is up to.

Video – Part 1 – as the protestors were setting up microphone and banners outside the British Consulate

Video Part 2- Margaret Kunstler, civil rights lawyer and co-editor of “In Defense of Julian Assange“.

Margaret Ratner Kunstler  … in 2015 and 2016, helped Assange plan his legal strategy and arrange media appearances … a 2017 direct message from Assange’s Twitter account to Donald Trump Jr., identified Kunstler as a person to contact at WikiLeaks … this has caused consternation in the left-wing legal community. Her long-time friends and associates find it unthinkable that an activist and stalwart in the civil rights bar might have aided the Trump campaign or administration, even inadvertently.” [Japan Times] Seems that isn’t of concern any more.

++  More on the Global Protests from other media++

Lawyers for the U.S. government are seeking Assange’s extradition to the United States, where he faces 18 charges; his specific criminal actions related to the release of hundreds of thousands of top-secret U.S. diplomatic cables and documents in 2010 and 2011.

Assange’s lawyer said he was the obvious symbol of all that Trump condemned… He brought American war crimes to the world. [LA Times]

Lawyers acting for the U.S. government said Assange was guilty of “pure criminality” and cannot hide behind the guise of journalist.

His actions — hacking into a U.S. Department of Justice computer system with U.S. Army intelligence analyst Bradley (Chelsea) Manning and knowingly putting people at risk of torture and death by releasing thousands of classified documents that revealed the identities of sources helping the U.S. and its allies during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; this is an ordinary criminal charge.

Journalism is not an excuse for criminality.

 Manning was convicted by court-martial under the Espionage Act and spent several years behind bars, but Assange has never faced trial. [LA Times]

BTW, at this Global Protest,
WHY: “FREE ‘Chelsea’ Manning?
Obama freed him in 2017.

Manning downloaded more than 700,000 classified documents from US military servers and passed them to WikiLeaks. [The Guardian 2013]

Manning said he attempted to contact the New York Times, and spoke to a Washington Post reporter during this period, but neither newspaper was quick to respond. So, he gave the information to WikiLeaks which went on to partner with news organizations, including the Guardian ,to share the leaked information. [NPR] [The Guardian 2017]

(Manning’s crime of espionage) was the largest compromise of classified information in the history of the United States.The names of human rights activists, journalists, religious leaders and dissidents were left unredacted in some of the material which, the prosecution argues, put them and their families at serious risk of being harmed by the oppressive governments they lived under. [LA Times]

The extradition hearing (for Assange) will continue for a week and then be placed on hold until May 18, 2020, so both sides can gather more evidence before a further three-week hearing.” [LA Times]

Leftists demand #No Business With ICE : Dignity Not Detention (for illegals)

#NoBusinessWithICE: Action for Dignity Not Detention

On February 16, Marxist protestors held an all out march and direct action targeting a company (Thompson Reuters) that they claim profits at the expense of (illegal) immigrant lives.

“We DEMAND that private companies stop being complicit in the horrific violence against immigrant communities.”

“We DEMAND that private companies cancel all contracts with ICE and withdraw all support that allows the violent institution (ICE) to continue to carry out its bloody mission.”

“At the end of the day, private companies provide facilities, transportation, tech, research, and myriad other forms of support to this violent institution (ICE) almost completely under the radar.”
[Face Book]

So, once again the Marxists assembled on the steps of the famous NYC Public Library at Fifth Ave and 42nd Street; preaching to the passersby of the horrible treatment immigrant families (ILLEGALS) suffer under the racist TRUMP administration.

About an hour after I arrived, having taken a grab bag of photos criticizing Trump and company, I lost interest. (They do repeat themselves) Also, the speakers were boring, accented, and difficult to understand. Ad nauseum indictments of racist Republicans and greedy CEOs.

In the short video below, one speaker mentions COMMUNIST “freedom fighter”, Assata Olugbala Shakur . They honored her by repeating a chant she is known for:

Decided to forego the interminable wait for the march …. to a secret location … It’s a corporation, that we knew, but they with held the “who or where”. We had to wait. Wish I’d hung in since the march was a short hop to 42nd and 7th ave., where they proceeded to lock-down a major intersection.

[TWITTER Rise and Resist]

Caught a few tweets and articles on the “shut the city down” maneuver (like that street action would get a response from Reuters.)[https://twitter.com/i/status/1229508038358454274]

[MSN.com] About 200 protesters marched from the New York Public Library to the headquarters of Thompson Reuters in Times Square on Sunday evening.

[WPIX 11] “The system of detention and deportation in the US would not be able to function without the cooperation with corporations,” said organizer Andy Ratto.

Next, for those activists who want to give sanctuary to illegals, a pledge:
Take the No Business With ICE Pledge [Face Book]

As ICE continues to target immigrant communities across the country, we must take action against the cities, schools, and corporations that do business with ICE. Every day, ICE depends on and receives support from mayors, local police departments, private tech companies, airlines, hospitals, and more to separate immigrant families. We say enough is enough. If you do business with ICE, then we won’t do business with you.

List of Corporations – that are to be harassed and shut down – because they have contracts and agreements with ICE – top 15

Note: if you choose to target a company, it is best not to demonize the workers, but rather demonize the CEO or the corporation itself. You will win more public support this way. [https://www.lahuelga.com]

”Our officers will not have their hands tied by sanctuary rules when enforcing immigration laws to remove criminal aliens from our communities,” David Jennings, ICE field officer director in San Francisco, said in a statement. ICE stated that California’s law does not supersede federal law and ”will not govern the conduct of federal officers to make arrests of removable alien inside the United States. [Sacramento CBS]

Thank you, President Trump!

Leftists claim GOP Destroys Democracy at Columbus Circle : “Take it Back”!

Wed. Feb 5, 2020. Columbus Circle.
We are tired, we are angry, but we will continue to fight Trump (and the GOP) until we drive them out of office

All this wailing came from the Marxist-Socialist Left.

[Face Book] “Rise and Resist, and 1000s of New Yorkers, will take to the streets on Wednesday, February 5th, at 5:30pm; 90 minutes after the Senate is scheduled to vote on Trump’s articles of impeachment. The verdict will most likely be an acquittal, but that doesn’t mean the resistance is over.”

“We are tired, we are angry, but we will continue to fight Trump (and the GOP) until we drive them out of office.”

“This is not just about Ukraine or election interference, but about corruption and authoritarian rule.”

Tell the world we know that Trump is guilty.
That the GOP is destroying democracy.
That we need to flip the Senate.
That we need to take back our democracy.

Rise and Resist and March for Truth

FLICKR Slide Show – Part 1 – After the acquittal was announced, TDS (Trump Deranged Syndrome) was hard core.

rip it up

The Leftists were very annoyed that Trump 2020 flags could be seen so easily in Columbus Circle.


They begged police to move patriots out of sight. Claimed police were treating the Trumpers with favoritism.


Part 2 Flickr slide show –
The Patriots did not move.

IMG_0876

Leftists were furious that Pres. Trump was acquitted, so EIGHT of their comrades volunteered to be arrested. The police got a heads up: Game on for the cameras.

The soc/commie/progs claim to march FOR democracy.


As the Leftists marched through the streets to Trump Tower, the Trump Patriots followed along.

Part 3 FLICKR slide show – The pre-arranged arrests and march

IMG_0935

.Post-march Face Book comments from the Leftists:

Thank you for coming out last night! From beginning to end, we had about 2,000 people ( they claim)  with the march four blocks long (they walk REAL slow) at one point.

Rise and Resist We’re not allowed to have metal poles for banners and posters (it’s a NYC law), but every march I’ve been to the Trump trolls bring gigantic banners on 10 foot tall metal poles(NOT. It’s PVC pipes) and the cops do nothing (not true). We need to see what we can get away with too! (This is a NEWBEE) 

FYI EVERYONE! The 8 arrestees from tonight’s action in Columbus Circle are at the 7th precinct on Pitt Street and Broome! PLEASE, if you have a few hours to spare tonight head down there to support these brave warriors! They need all the help we can give them! (Ridiculously unaware. The cities new law lets everyone out- even murders – the new no bail excuse to put everyone back on the streets)

 Short videos  – Part 1 – the protestors gather in Columbus Circle

Part 2 – the pre arranged photo-oped arrests

Part 3 – The march to Trump Tower – finally.

.[https://youtu.be/kM8gspVOuw0] Linking to Barely Informed With Elad video. He interviews the Communist tools as they marched. It’s a little long but easily captures the indoctrination of the Marxist/Socialist Left. (some quotes follow)

Woman #1: Mitch is a Russian asset. Bernie a Socialist. She doesn’t know if Socialism leads to Communism. GOP election fraud. She: Injustice no trial. No idea if Dems doing good job in Iowa cause she’s  focusing on “OUT Now”.

Guilty as Charged chants

Guy with(GOP) Hammer/Sickle sign – GOP is selling out to Russia. Putin’s Puppet. Elad asks are GOP Commies? Do you think Communism is bad? (Silence, then a  reply) GOP sold out to Russia. Re Mueller report – the protestor claims GOP happy to receive help from Russia. (No answer re Dems – mouth agape)

Commie leader (Jay Walker) lead the “stupid maggots” chant aimed at Elad.

Guy with Sign(he’s an Aussie or Kiwi) We are in dictatorship. Repubs. Senate. Trump can do anything he wants. He’ll cancel the 2020 elections.

Elad: How is he a dictator? Man says: electoral college does not represent people. Elad: If he is a Dictator, why no wall? Man says: The people have stopped it. We need to give AID to Mexico etc. then no problems. (he claims) Democratic Socialism- Socialism – is helping poorer people.

(Woman says Elad is a troll, don’t talk to him. Man says, I know) 8:53

Man sign: No King Never a Kingdom. Says Trump like a King- a tsar- a vassal Tsar. Elad asks: Build the wall … a King would have built the wall. Man: that’s ridiculous question – they said they can do whatever they what on floor Senate- Trump disrespects law enforcement. Elad: was he honestly elected? Man: He lies- is anyone above the law- Ukraine is not about Joe or Hunter Biden- it’s a smoke screen- allegations about corruption- it’s a private business.

Woman- Repubs did not want to hear truth. (Elad asks about Bill Clinton) She doesn’t want to talk about that. Elad: How is Trump screwing country. Woman: So many ways- he ruined relationship with allies-. Elad: You don’t think America is better than others?  Woman: No.  Says there is no dictatorship – yet- Doesn’t accept 2016 results. Hillary got popular vote. Elad: You don’t like our Constitution? Woman: She’s against Electoral College- Trump is illegit. Our constitution based in racism- Electoral based on States not cities – People in cities much more aware.

Again: He’s a TROLL

Another woman: This demo being pushed into the park – police had (Marxist) demo pushed into park- Who did that!

Elad: Trump reached highest approval rating – 49%

Woman: People are remarkably ignorant – less and less educated – some are smart but vote with pocket book – others don’t understand how BAD he is making it for them

Criminal justice reform – IF he’s really done anything – he CLAIMED he did something.

And again: He’s a TROLL . Elad asks: Why am I a right wing troll?

Woman: I’m from the tribe, too (TRIBE?) You know what I mean. He’s making things worse, she says. Elad: Any anti-semites on Left  (She just can’t admit this) Woman: LINDA (Sarsour) is NOT an anti Semite. Elad: Tamika. Ilhan? Woman: They had to step down- still involved and they are NOT anti-semites.  (she asks) What did they DO? Elad: Please look it up.

Stop the cover up. Trump is guilty

Woman: Convicted of TREASON – He should be jailed – Democracy DIES. (Elad: If Trump re-elected, will that represent the country? Would he be accepted?) She: IF the  election is fair. No FOREIGN interference.  (Elad: He’s already illegit?) SHE: No, he won by illegit means. (She won’t say who she would like to win.)

SHE: Didn’t watch speech. Had a migraine. PROUD of Nancy. Elad: (on tearing speech) Was that mature?  Woman:  It was HONEST.


“Keeping America Great” means “Take it Back”. Save Democracy from the Soc/Commie/Progs on the Left. VOTE Trump 2020!

#FTP3 on #J31 Commies Protest POLICE at Grand Central

4:30 pm. Jan 31, 2020. Grand Central Station. “The times they are a changin’ “cause OWS (Occupy Wall Street) was tame compared to these a**hat (Antifa-masked) (communist) anarchists.  Today FTP (F#ck the Police) was their battle cry.

Saw plenty of old school Commies in the crowd but the new-gen was “in charge”. That contingent determined to shut down the transit system with violence. Anarchy. Chaos.

Their protest issues: No Fares. Free access.

NO COPS

(this one makes sense) More ELEVATORS (that work)

Rioting for a Progressive New World Order demands: no cops and no RICH, greedy, privileged white people.

The police were amazing. Professional. The swarming protestors – that bowled over any human in their path –  were contained  quickly.
I was caught in a swarming “riot” as they arrested a guy (two guys actually)- pushed to the floor  by the chaos with no point of exit.

Luckily a fellow reporter (thank you Barely Informed with Elad) got me up and out to the street before I was trampled. There I caught a glimpse of how many police were on call.

After hanging on the sidewalk for awhile, I went back inside where I saw more jamming of the Main Hall with protestors and signs. Same ol. Same ol’. (I bailed)

So I got  on the 42nd st X town bus (forget the subways) just as a huge protest march hit the street – heading west on 42 st the bus was TRAPPED …  at Madison Ave  … as police wrangled the very large ‘crossing of the red sea’.

Finally, the all clear. I got off the bus and walked west with the protestors (towards Times Sq). They had managed to swarm the subway entrance at Fifth avenue, but after that-no way. The police had the entrances controlled.

At 6th ave. a protestor – or two – were arrested for vandalizing the front glass of a trendy watch / clock store. “FTP” written on the window of  a merchant’s midtown windows. nasty.

While the watch store was vandalized, I shared a moment with a familiar veteran Commie.

“We’re not with THEM”, she said. “I’m an agitator.” She uses her words – not violence, she said. Then I heard someone say “They call police n*ggers“.  (Did not expect that)

Guess the old school commies are feeling the push – as the new breed anarchists take over. The New-Gen anarchists. It’s their show. Just take in their #FTP multi-purpose TOOL. (with so many meanings ….in a weary world)

With violence as a chaser. That’s the game. Anarchy. Chaos. Keeping us SAFE? The times – they are a changin’.

Women’s Alliance March on NYC : “Come Rise and ROAR with us” in 2020

The Women’s Alliance was one of two NYC marches planned for January 18, 2020. They announced: “The demonstration will take on a different tone than in past years as its leaders seek to turn over a new leaf with disaffected activists and groups that in recent years have cut ties with the organization.” [NBC NY]

Slogans to win friends and influence people.

The Women’s Alliance was at Columbus Circle [https://womensmarchalliance.org/]

 The Women’s Unity March, was at Foley Square. [https://www.womensmarchnyc.org]

10 am – chose Columbus Circle to catch the Chilean Rape Feminist Collective (Las Tesis) that has become all the rage.

I had readWe are partnering with other womXn’s organizations in New York City to bring this action to the uptown-based (Columbus Circle) Women’s March on Saturday, January 18.  Las Tesis performs  throughout the world, their viral anthem, “The Rapist is YOU!’. This action is for womXn-identifying folX only. We welcome our non-womXn allies to join us for the march following the action!

They welcome dyou (sort of) with images that challenged good-taste ….

Unfortunately, all I found was a women’s drum corp; couldn’t find Las Tesis.

In the distance, however, was the early bird crowd jammed close by the stage. I moved on to record their pithy signs for posterity.

Spent the next hour watching the group-lets of women (and men) marching down Central Park West.

Sign after sign advanced toward the Rise and Roar stage, having started at 72nd st.; the entry point to CPW.

Heard a couple of speakers – all ROARING as they began and ended their speeches. (lots of silly roaring) Then I caught sight of Dion Cini’s Trump 2020 flag flying high over the crowd. (Fun)

NY Lt Gov, Kathy Hochul‘s speech was cheered on by the appreciative crowd.

Once I saw the Trump 2020 flag cross over to the park side, I dropped by for a quick hello; that’s when I overheard an officer thanking Dion for his flag. (nice)

Dion,  countering the feminist lies.

Enjoyed this pro-Trump moment, before heading toward the Chilean rape marchers (I think they were finally getting a small group together)

Also, sharing the space with some NO WAR protestors.

Later I heard I had missed the SPITTER, triggered by the Trump 2020 flag. Glad to see the NYPD was not harassing Dion.

Spitting on me because of my hat & flag is now considered ‘Women’s Rights’

TRIGGERED by everything Trump.

And then there was that “Guitar Man of Central Park”, proud of his hatred for our President.  #thatguitarman  (Sad)

Final note: The announced meet-up in Times Square, where the two groups would come together – in spite of their differences – fizzled out. 43rd and 6th (not Times Sq) is where the Alliance finished their march – and dispersed.

The Foley Sq marchers did not appear in Time Sq. (So much for UNITY)

Part 1 Flickr slide show Columbus Circle

Part 2 Flickr slide show Columbus Circle

The Alliance and Unity protests, each roared loud and proud, but – in spite of the “diversity” claims – the crowd was mostly WHITE women. middle aged. moneyed. Educated women of “privilege” claiming to have suffered under some wicked patriarchy – here – in the United States. Annoying silliness, from all ages. All colors. Rude. crude. entitled.

++“2020 is the Year of the Roar! We Roar for Justice. We Roar for Peace. We Roar for Change. We Roar Equality. THE WOMEN OF NYC ARE UNITED!” ++

 “At Columbus Circle, The Women’s March Alliance also supports the ROARS of the Women’s March NYC rally taking place at Foley Square. It was a priority to bring the two marches together. Both leadership teams have been working seamlessly and cooperatively to ensure success and sisterhood going forward, continuing the tradition of marching for justice and equality.

“This will be the last March with Donald Trump in the White House (as he’ll probably be removed a few days later), so this is our biggest moment to stand up and prove we have not gone away, gotten scared, or turned our backs to the misogyny and bigotry he spews and enables.”

This Women’s March on NYC is embracing of women and our non-binary, gender-fluid, a-gender and male allies from all walks of life and experiences.

From the “NYC Women’s Unity March & Rally”: Rise and Roar 2020 (Foley Sq). “RISE with us as we rally at Foley Square and then march to Times Square to meet our sister marches as we ROAR. We must vote in November. Stay WOKE.

Foley Square – 3pm – RISE and ROAR Unite with Columbus Circle rally in Times Square. “Walking and train marches will converge as thousands of women and allies meet together under the lights of Times Square in solidarity and unity for Women’s Rights.” (DID NOT HAPPEN)

As for that that United Front: “The Best Laid Plans of Mice and WomXn, Gang aft a-gley.” Better luck next time, LadiXs.
